Today I'm sharing our ever-changing + budget friendly bedroom! One of my favorite things about our apartment is the painted white brick. Our bedroom has two large brick walls adding lots of texture and warmth to the space. We wanted a minimalist bedroom that used existing pieces from our last apartment and showcased our favorite pieces without added clutter.
My dad built our palette bed frame when Brandon and I first moved to Providence. It is super heavy and hard to move around, but stylistically fits our industrial loft quite well. Our end tables were from thrift stores and Brandon spray-painted them to match one another. We changed out the knobs on the end table with drawers to a cute set from Anthropologie a few months back and it totally helped bring it to a higher level. The leggy end table was such a happy find and exactly what I was looking for to compliment our heavy nightstand.
In the near future we are definitely looking to switch out our bedding but it's one of the few things we can't agree on. Color? Linen? Cotton? Textured? Quilt? Duvet? AH! Until then, we've stuck with neutrals and textures to keep it interesting. Married life. HMMPH. Am I right? (P.S. Yes. That is totally a cat teepee!)
You may remember this pretty awesome folding bench from our living room tour. I moved it into the bedroom recently and love how it fits the space. It's moved around this apartment quite a bit and I'm sure it isn't at the end of its journey here, either. I kept our full-length mirror uninterrupted so I could run back and forth from the closet and complain about my outfit with nothing in my way. It's an IKEA Mongstad that we spray-painted to match the nightstands. I like how it kind of disappears now and makes the space feel a bit larger. (click thru for more of our bedroom!)
